MOORESVILLE, N.C. (September 27, 2011) – Turner Motorsports will swap the road crews of its No. 4 and No. 32 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams for this weekend’s Kentucky 225 at Kentucky Speedway.
Doug George will assume the crew chief duties for Ricky Carmichael’s No. 4 Monster Energy Chevrolet Silverado while Mark Rette will call the shots for rookie Blake Feese and the No. 32 AccuDoc Solutions entry.
“We’re trying something different with both teams this weekend,” explained Turner Motorsports owner Steve Turner. “Our teams go to the race track each weekend with the goals of consistently competing at a high level and raising the bar for our sponsors and fans. As we look ahead to next season, we’re in the process of evaluating both programs. Turner Motorsports continues to work towards having all three of our trucks run up front not only for the rest of this season but in 2012 and beyond.”
Live coverage of the Kentucky 225 from Kentucky Speedway will take the green flag Saturday, Oct. 1 beginning at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The race will be televised live on SPEED and broadcast on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90. Qualifying for the 20th of 25 races on the 2011 NCWTS schedule will be televised the same day on SPEED at 6 p.m. EDT.
